On 9 March 2018, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published a Federal Register1 stating that the Commission has received a petition from Hövding Sweden AB (Hövding) requesting CPSC to exempt inflatable head protective devices for bicycle riders, which include Hövding’s product, from the testing requirements of the Federal bicycle helmets safety standard (16 CFR 1203), if such product complies with, and gets certification on another standard that Hövding states is appropriate.
CPSC is seeking comments for a 60 days period concerning this petition, including the following consideration to justify Hövding’s petition.
All comments should be submitted to CPSC by 8 May 2018.
